Nicely done! The video series balances providing needed information and education on how Charity Navigator serves the philanthropic community by providing "Transparency" of the status of various charities who seek to attract money for their cause. I was particularly interested in the view of how technology going forward is going to impact the field of charitable giving.

From Jim
When I "check" a "reduce poverty" charity, I am looking for how the charity measures the reduction of poverty, not how many people they "reached" or how many chickens they gave away. Does Charity Navigator offer this information?

You are talking about what we call outcome measurement. The short answer is, not yet (nor does anybody else). However, stay tuned, in 2009 you will begin to see this kind of information. I will have a blog entry up on Monday which talks about this subject.
